Sin­ga­pore’s ris­ing R&B queen gives us the low-down on “Bul­let­proof” and her ob­ses­sion with Drake

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE CULTURE -

“BUL­LET­PROOF” IS… About love—an un­con­di­tional, all-for­giv­ing type of love that’s go­ing to fight through and sur­vive the tough times, be­tween two peo­ple who will al­ways have each other’s back.

THE TRACK... Was recorded last year in Swe­den, where I had the op­por­tu­nity to work with some amaz­ing pro­duc­ers. We spent four to five days hard at work in the stu­dio, mak­ing sure we got all the right sounds. MY SOUND IS… Em­pow­er­ing, mys­te­ri­ous, sexy, and all about R&B. THE FANS HAVE BEEN... So pos­i­tive and amaz­ing! I’ve had peo­ple mes­sage me from Thai­land say­ing they love the track and can’t wait for more mu­sic, which is just crazy to me! I’ll be trav­el­ling quite a bit around the re­gion for the next cou­ple of months. NEXT UP… Is an EP, which I’m very ex­cited to share. We’re in the midst of putting it to­gether with a bit of record­ing left to do, but there’ll def­i­nitely be new mu­sic this year. MY EAR­LI­EST MEM­ORY OF MU­SIC… Was hear­ing a lot of clas­si­cal mu­sic and The Bea­tles at home. My dad metic­u­lously col­lected CDs over the years, and I’d spend hours in his study go­ing through them. I bought my first CD with re­cess money I saved—it was Destiny’s Child’s Writ­ing­son the Wall.

THREE THINGS NOT MANY PEO­PLE KNOW ABOUT ME ARE… I’m afraid of but­ter­flies; I eat Oreos dipped in peanut but­ter; and I’ve mem­o­rised about ev­ery sin­gle word of Drake’s songs. MY STAGE STYLE MUST-HAVES ARE… A dope jacket, kicks and sexy hair.
